MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 24, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- The problem of evil is perhaps the most difficult question the Christian must face. If God is good and all-powerful, why is there suffering in the world? Can't God put an end to murder, rape, and starvation? What about earthquakes, hurricanes, and tsunamis? Why couldn't a perfect God have made a perfect world?
With a renowned reputation in both apologetics and theology, Dr. Norman Geisler carefully answers these tough questions, introducing a new, fresh way to think about the question. Using step-by-step explanations and compelling examples, Dr. Geisler -- whose books have sold over 1.5 million copies -- approaches the subject in his trademark clear and concise yet thorough and systematic way readers love and expect.
In addition, he walks the reader through time-tested answers while explaining his new approach, revolving around whether or not this world is the "best of all possible worlds." Believers will be comforted with his conclusion that God is both loving and all-powerful.
